Lot 157. Very Fine Pair of Jadeite and Lavender Jadeite Bangles. Estimate on Request© Tiancheng International Auctioneer Limited.

Bangles are among some of the finest pieces in jadeite collecting and are highly sought after by connoisseurs. Jadeite bangles of superior quality are exceptionally difficult to come by as they have to be carved from an entire piece of premium-grade boulder. Plump and robust, this pair of bangles shows off their captivating hues in full roundness. The rich and radiant emerald green, as well as the luscious and beguiling lavender are the perfect embodiments of auspiciousness and harmony.



Lot 60. Jadeite and Diamond Necklace. Estimate: HK$ 4,000,000 - 6,000,000/US$ 513,000 - 770,000© Tiancheng International Auctioneer Limited.

The production of jadeite necklaces requires a large amount of rough of homogenous quality. It also puts the craftsman’s expertise to the test, as it involves highly complicated polishing procedures. The current lot consists of 82 beads of luxuriant green hue and remarkable translucency, forming two substantial strands that could be worn separately.




Lot 80. 18.18-Carat Natural Unheated Burmese Mogok “Pigeon’s Blood” Ruby and Diamond Ring; Diamonds together weighing approx. 9.65 carats. Estimate: HK$ 7,500,000 - 9,500,000/US$ 962,000 - 1,218,000. © Tiancheng International Auctioneer Limited.

Natural Burmese rubies are typically smaller in size, so those of 5 carats or above are very difficult to come by. Over the past decade, superior-quality Burmese rubies of an impressive size are like gold dust in the auction market. This true wonder of nature, weighing over 18 carats, was unearthed 3 from the famed Mogok mine in Burma. Surrounded by a garland of brilliant white diamonds, the irresistible fiery ruby, displaying the most desirable “pigeon’s blood” crimson hue, is the epitome of opulence.


Lot 156. 13.56-Carat Natural Untreated Colombian Muzo Emerald and Diamond Ring; Diamonds together weighing approx. 5.50 carats. Estimate: HK$ 6,500,000 - 9,500,000/US$ 833,300 - 1,218,000© Tiancheng International Auctioneer Limited.

Among emeralds, those originating from the Muzo mines in Colombia are the rarest, and are celebrated for their vibrant, lush green hue. This highly-coveted quality is known as “oil drop” by the locals, indicating a hue so rich and saturated that it seems as if oil could drip from them. At 13.56 carats, this emerald is a proud native of Muzo. Free of any oil enhancements, it is endowed with a mesmerising green and unrivalled clarity, making it an outstanding possession that deserves pride of place in any private collection.



Lot 155. 67.61-Carat Natural Unheated Mozambican Paraiba Tourmaline and Diamond Necklace; Diamonds together weighing approx. 8.00 carats. Estimate: HK$ 880,000 - 1,200,000/US$ 113,000 - 154,000© Tiancheng International Auctioneer Limited.

Heat treatment is a common enhancement for Paraiba tourmalines. Heated at a relatively low temperature, the process enhances the hue of the gemstone while leaving its chemical composition and its overall stability intact. Fewer than 1% of Paraiba tourmalines in the market are free of heat treatment, of which this impressive 67.61-carat natural Paraiba tourmaline is one. The gemstone displays a gentle bluish green colour and superb clarity reminiscent of the limpidity of a flowing stream, which is echoed by the sparkles of the scintillating diamonds that surround it, granting the necklace with a dignified glamour.
